Papier-Mache Easter Eggs

papier-mache Easter eggs

For Easter I made papier-mache polka dotted eggs.

I made small pinatas using water balloons and tissue paper.

I filled them with candy, then sealed them shut.

You can also put toys or notes inside.

They have to be ripped to open them, which is way fun.

    These are so cute. I think I’ll have to make some for Easter :)

    These are way cuter than the plastic Easter eggs! And I bet they’re just as much fun to make as they are to give.

    looove the chickie going in head first. I wonder if I could make these for Passover, with frogs and bugs to represent the plagues…cute !

    Great idea. I love it. Wonder if I’ll have time to make them before the weekend.

    How cute are these eggs?!?! Love them! I don’t have any kiddos to make them for but I may try just for fun. Thanks for sharing!

  • 19 Seanna Lea // Apr 19, 2011 at 11:18 am

    Those are adorable! You are so much better about coming up with seasonal content than I am (and especially seasonal content that I want to turn around and make).

    These are SO CUTE! Great idea and great project!

    These are so beautiful, yet whimsical! They would be great fun to give in Easter baskets but also to decorate the Easter brunch table.

  • 25 Wenderly // Apr 21, 2011 at 6:35 am

    O.k. Stop. It.
    I am in *love* with these. I adore polka dots, where did you find that great tissue paper? And the chick falling into the egg? Cutest thing evah…

  • 26 megan // Apr 21, 2011 at 9:21 am

    Wenderly – Thank you, I found the tissue paper at the Packaging Specialties store here in Seattle. Though, you need so little color tissue that a pack of the multi color from a gift store would work great as well.

    [...] According to my sister, the farmer’s market is apparently out of white eggs as people get ready for egg hunts. Given that we’re not hard boiled egg fans anyhow, these are a perfect substitute. [...]

    [...] Paper Mache Eggs – if you have the time, you really must make these cuties, from Not Martha.  Small water balloons get you the egg shape, and then you can fill them with all kinds of candy or treats – and have fun watching the kiddos break them open to discover the insides! [...]

    Amazingly fun project for my whole family (mom, non-crafty husband, 8 year old boy and 11 year old girl). The possibilities are endless. Our rainy Friday was saved by this project! We made so many that I ended up sealing some of them empty and hung them around the window like a garland. Thank you for your very inspiring website!
